The Top Ten Defenders in Football going into 2021

Stefan Savic leads the way as top Defender so far


By fan rankings | January 6, 2021

Some leagues have been on the winter break, but the coronavirus pandemic that has already caused a fixture pile-up has forced the Premier League, La Liga and the Scottish top flight, among other competitions to continue.

Teams like Rangers FC have continued their fine run of form this season as they look to stop Celtics FC from winning a tenth consecutive league title.

The La Liga is still on with Atletico Madrid looking to win it ahead of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Liverpool is also looking to retain their English Premier League title at the end of this season, but this season has been an unpredictable one in England.

Defenders have one of the toughest jobs in the team, and the successes of several of the teams have relied on their defenders being in top form.


This week, we look at the top defenders in Europe, and our choice for the best defender in Europe is Atletico Madrid’s Stefan Savic.

The former Manchester City man has become indispensable at Atletico Madrid as they look to win another La Liga title under Diego Simeone.

The last week has been particularly good for him as he has helped them to keep two clean sheets in as many games, with him playing the full games.

Savic has had an average rating of 6.86 in the league this season. Incredibly, he also has a pass success rate of 86.2 percent from 13 league games, according to Whoscored.

His defense partner, Felipe has also been solid and comes second on our list for the week. Where do you place Savic in the current Defender Fan Rankings? Rank below to be added in the Power Rankings and to have a chance to win a gift card to Amazon or Contest Ending January 31st
